This sounds entirely reasonable to me.  It works neatly as a separate library.

I think the theory was that the fact that a gmodel was a property-list would
make it easy for people to develop their gui without having a working Gorm
application.  But it seems to me that experience has shown that it's easier
to hard-code the gui than to edit gmodel files ... so it is only really
valuable as a tool for porting MacOS/OPENSTEP apps to GNUstep.
